Hurt’s so Good! Management of Acute Dental Pain & Appropriate Opiate Prescribing *

* Meets new mandatory opioid prescribing education rules (2 CEUs) for the Ohio RDH and DDS licensure renewal beginning 2020
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, more than 115 Americans die after overdosing on opioids every day! Management of acute odontogenic pain is accomplished through a clinical approach that successfully incorporates both opioid and non-opioid analgesics. However, moderate to severe dental pain often occurs well after office hours and away from our immediate supervision. Thus, it is critical for clinicians to be able to accurately identify a patient's need for pain control, develop an individualized pain management plan and assess the efficacy of analgesic agents employed. This program will provide strategies for effectively managing dental pain with opioid and non-opioid analgesics and analgesic adjuvants, while also mitigating associated risks. Special emphasis will be given to appropriate practices for prescribing analgesics as well as identification and treatment of opioid analgesic abuse
